  1. This one is topped out, it appears.
  2. These two would be a major focal change on the skyline. I really hope these kick off in the next year or so.
  3. The Post Oak: 36-Story High-Rise & Conference Center

    Yes. I love craft beer and have tried a lot so there wasn't much on the menu I haven't tried. Places like Hay Merchant are still better but for this location, I am happy. There is a mix of Houston (8th Wonder, Karbach, Lone Pint, Southern Star) and Texas beers (Shiner, Oasis) along with some larger national brands like Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, Goose Island, and Ballast Point as well as a few German beers. They also have 12 or so beers in bottles you can buy. If someone is looking for Bud or Miller, you won't find those here.
  4. The Post Oak: 36-Story High-Rise & Conference Center

    I went to Craft F&B yesterday. They had 24 beers on tap and a list of cocktails. Good prices on the drinks. The food is well priced as well for this type of restaurant. $12 burger and the brick oven pizza is a little more. But you get a good size pizza for the price. I really liked the place and will be making many more trips. I walked the rest of the hotel lobby and conference area. It is extremely well designed with a ton of white marble. It is one of the nicest if not the nicest building I have checked out in Houston. The French place isn't really for me but had some nice looking pastries and coffee. The high end cocktail bar was nice as well. Props to Tillman for putting together a very nice and cohesive structure.
  5. Exactly. What frustrates me is RD seems to release fantastic renderings, sell 50% of units based on those renderings, and then change them for cost. I expect change from what is first shown but this project is a great example of one that would have been easily the best residential tower in Houston to feeling like it is unfinished. Clearly he knows what he is doing because he has been able to sell and build multiple projects but I just want the best and not what could have been.
  6. Houston Botanical Garden at The Glenbrook Golf Course

    It would be so much better to take the River Oaks Country Club. More central location that is already heavily visited and is near the arboretum. But as others have said, the River Oaks folks have enough cash laying around to hold it up in court. It is much easier to take from the poor.
  7. Mandell Montrose (formerly Flats on Fairview)

    If you are referring to the red brick building on the other side of Fairview, it is offices. An architecture firm and others are located there. There is a 5-story condo building a block or two away on Hyde Park that seem to be high end. But in reality it is probably not nearly as fancy.
  8. It is a shame this didn't stick with the original design. His obsession with white stucco and no clue how to hid a podium ruin so many of his projects.
  9. Here are other Tradition Living properties
  10. There are a bunch of Floyds in the Denver area
  11. Marlowe: 20-floors, Downtown Condo Tower

    For a guy that likes to provide high end living, he builds the worst podiums in the city. It bothers me working in Uptown and having to stare at the giant white blocks every way I look. He is obsessed with white stucco.
  12. Riva at the Park

  13. Australian Developer Planning Three High-Rises for Midtown

    Incredible. If these two new towers end up as tall as the FAA filings, this should be a huge focal point on the skyline. Caydon is a gamechanger.
